When Pope John Paul II was on his death bed, Drudge pronounced him dead about three times before the Pontiff actually died. It looks like Perez is taking the title of “the blogger who cried wolf” with his claims that Cuban leader Fidel Castro is dead. Aside from Perez, only Drudge even mentions Castro and Drudge’s post links to a local NBC affiliate that says Castro isn’t dead.
Perez says the police are waiting for rush-hour traffic to die down before making the announcement. I doubt that a major announcement like this will be held off so there isn’t traffic in Miami.
Thanks Perez, one step back for new media.
